Let take boys be 7x and girl be 5x then according to question 7x=5x+8 7x-5x=8 2x=8 x=8/2=4 total strength=7x+5x=12x putting the value of x=4 answer is 48 student

Let girls be x and boys be 8 + x now taking the ratio 8+x/x=7/5 on solving we get 40+5x+7x 40=2x 20=x girls are 20 then boys are 20+8=28 and now total strength is 20+28=48
